Pistorius: Nation Prepares for Final Act of Blade Runner Murder Trial

Hosted by

South African Oscar Pistorius became an international hero as the first double amputee to run in the Olympics, using prosthetic legs that led to the nickname "blade runner." Now his murder trial has made him a daily feature on South African TV in what one crime writer called, "The Kardashians meet OJ Simpson." The prosecution has rested, and Pistorius is scheduled to take the stand next week. He doesn't deny firing four shots through a bathroom door, killing his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, a model who was also a graduate of law school. David Smith is covering the trial for The Guardian newspaper.
